[laughter] know, look, first of all he has in he has, in fact, laid out a very comprehensive, by far the most comprehensive approach to foreign policy in a very long white paper. is given a big speech on the subject. but as is normal in the nature of most primary campaigns, it just hasn't been the topic does you were. and you don't get a chance to let out the grand vision of american foreign policy when you're debating contraception and you know, all the other important topics that you're debating. so i think you'll see more. a better time to ask this question will be in the general election. because then i think it would be a discussion about american foreign policy. i think that there has been room for criticism of the obama administration, and i know that one of the major approaches of governor romney, for instance, is that for quite some time and effort is part of the world, president obama has not been particularly great with a number of our allies. he's n

note in the news this morning it said that mitt romney is starting to turn to the obama administration and focus its critique on its foreign policy which strikes me a bit like peewee herman challenging mike tyson, but i would appreciate your assessments. >> barbara? >> sure. well, president obama said something very sensible, i forget whether it was in his -- i think it was actually in his speech to the apec convention where he pointed out that the only way you can actually get a country to not build nuclear weapons is if leadership of that country decides not to build nuclear weapons, that there's no other permanent way to stop nuclear proliferation. i thought that was a really key point. um, so, i mean, he's basically saying that we have sanctions, we have other tools, but, you know, ultimately it's going to have to be a decision of the iranian government. there is no -- he was saying, in effect, there is no military solution to the iranian nuclear program even while he insists that all options remain on the table. so i think that's very useful. but we've seen, certainly, mitt romney

lines between our priorities and theirs. the romney-ryan budget, for example, cuts $2.2 billion in education for children with disabilities. and what do they say to these parents? i guess they justify it by saying we just can't afford it. so why is it that we cannot afford it when five companies that collectively made $137 billion in profits just last year alone are getting $24 billion in subsidies over the next ten years. so you tell these children on the romney-ryan budget they cannot be helped to fulfill their god-given potential because we just can't afford it, but we can afford to give these five companies who made $137 billion in profits -- not proceeds, profits -- that we should give them an additional $24 billion of our taxpayers' money? i don't think so, madam president. here's another example. republicans are proposing cutting $13 billion per year from the snap program. that's formerly called the food stamp program. for families who do not know where their next meal will come from. so laid-off workers may not be able to feed their families, but our republican colleague

of the aisle came out with what i call the romney-ryan budget, their proposed budget, and it would drastically cut funding for wounded soldiers, for seniors, for students. but it leaves in place these wasteful subsidies. it leaves in place these wasteful subsidies, even though we have this enormous profit. now, through some political sleight of hand, they defy reality when they tell us with a straight face that we have to make tough choices and then they cut funding for wounded soldiers, for seniors and students but won't touch the subsidies for big oil. somehow in this republican parallel universe, logic is turned on its head and we are asked to believe that fairness doesn't mean treating everyone equally, it means more for the very rich and more for big oil. but we don't live in a parallel universe, we live in the real world. fairness means that working families should not be the only people sacrificing, and we can't lower the deficit while we give taxpayer dollars away to big oil companies who are making record profits and not producing more energy. it's really amazing to me that anybody ca
and it seems to me we are seeing from republicans a lot of change in position especially mitt romney. in 2006, governor mitt romney said in the this is a direct quote commentary much in favor of people recognizing that these high gasoline prices are probably here to stay. the new republic covered in an article just recently here but i would like to submit for the record, madam chair, the title of the article when he liked high gas prices in fact highlighted he was very much for a lot of the plans of president obama has put forward today. on the issue of gas prices i would note the associated press recently conducted a comprehensive statistical study going back 36 years. the study shows no correlation, underlining no correlation between u.s. drilling and gasoline prices. gasoline prices are driven by an oil prices which are set on the global market. the u.s. has the highest count in at least 25 years but we do not control the global supply and demand. so that's something that i think consumers need to realize and understand. even if we were totally oe all in dependent, my candidate is we would

, which republicans reject. helping the domestic auto industry, which they, even mitt romney, their leader on the republican side, said that was a mistake to help detroit, ohio, et cetera. detroit, michigan and places in ohio. so, i'm coming to the floor to say, you know, this blame game is not going to work, because both parties are really, i think, almost equally at fault. senator begich and i would like to believe that we kind of represent a little bit of the democratic side, a little bit of the republican side coming from states, both of us being democrats, but from states that know something about drilling. and i want to put up my map of louisiana so that people believe when i say that we know something about drilling. this is what my state looks like. some people might not like this picture. this is the oil and gas infrastructure in louisiana. to somebody that's a purist and doesn't like pipelines and doesn't like oil wells and doesn't like leases, they may recoil at this. but people in louisiana like this because this is about money. tanned's about domestic -- and it's about domesti

but there are fundamental differences. if you look at mitt romney's rating when he left massachusetts and the size of brick santorum's defeat in pennsylvania and look at what i have done. i helped create the georgia republican party. i worked in the georgia gop when there was no georgia gop. i ran for congress in the middle of watergate. i ran for five years during a congressional seat. i turned around and took 16 years to create a national majority. i helped design the first capitol steps event in history. we won six senate seats by a combined margin of 75,000 votes that year and won the senate when nobody thought we could. in 1984 i helped design a campaign that set a record carrying 49 states and picked up 33 house seats. in 1988 we were behind michael dukakis 19 points in may and decide a reagan style campaign. we didn't try to go to the middle. if george w. bush had run to a moderate he would have gotten beaten. he ran as a reagan conservative promising no new taxes and spending for national defense and attacking the kind of massachusetts liberalism that michael dukakis represented. we switched 25% of
